That makes no sense to me. But what do I know, I've only spent twelve years working in financial and network programming.

Can I use you as an adviser when I launch my own coin? Like I really just need to list people with good linkedins to give some credibility to the project. I will pay you in tokens.

I don't know if it will make more sense but maybe these two quick vids could be helpfull.





So basically Ethereum's a decentralized network on top of which you can build applications (ERC20 Tokens) and which functions with GAS (fractions of ETH that are sent by the parties involved in a transaction on the network to the miners that approve the transactions).

An exemple of an ERC20 token with an actual use case is VEN.

VeChain is a Blockchain-as-a-Service company that aims to provide trustless and transparent supply chain management to industries across the board.

Using smart chips that were designed and manufactured in-house, VeChain is able to track goods and ensure product quality and authenticity. This enables retailers to prove that the luxury items they are selling are legitimate, giving consumers peace of mind that they aren’t being scammed.


So when Ven, or any application built in top of ethereum generates a transaction, you need to pay gas. Let's say you bought 100 VEN tokens on an exchange and want to send it to your wallet, you send the VEN to you VEN address in your Ether wallet and you have to have ETH to pay for gas. If you only have VEN and BTC, you won't be able to send your VEN.

Thus, the idea that if one of the platforms becomes widely adopted, it will always require more of the said coin to be able to use the platform. Now it also implies that if a platform becomes widely adopted and speculators inflate the price of the coin, less people will want to use the chain.. but there's a dual mechanism since those miners who collect the GAS also sell it on a regular basis to pay for their costs of operation, and thus push the price down.

Anyway, the idea of trading mostly these coins is that it seems like a safer bet and they are also the most capitalized coins so their volatility (although absurdly high by traditional markets standard) is not as high as the application/speculation coins...

I got no idea what all this Betcoin stuff in. I used to collect coins as a kid. Stamps and Comic books too. Are these Betcoins like that? Can I trade them like Pogs.


Forget the Slammer, I'll stick to the market. On a good run with Shopify here. I think I'll unload again close to $200. I think it should get there. If it closes over $184 today, it should get there within the week. Locking in profits was my biggest change from when I was young, dumb and full of chum. The last three years have been pretty good and those simple rules of sell if you go lower than 8% under your buy, and sell on good runs has actually worked. Started with barely 5 digits, but the old girl is starting to grow. Big buy blocks really are key now that I can see it from that perspective. No one the rich filthy animals just keep getting richer.

I sent 15$ worth of pogs to two poor Venezuelans last week.. they were not begging for money, but they ended up posting pictures of their fridges and it was one of the saddest thing I've seen in a while.. a bunch of us sent them small amounts of pogs and now they can pay a year worth of rent, but most likely buy shiny shoes and booze, but who cares really?

Full portfolio buys always get the heart pumping. :wink: :donger: :vince:


Looking to sell Shopify soon. It's gone up nicely since the March 28th buy. $219 right now, and I bought at $160 end of March.


She's been a good girl, but I'm guessing we'll see a pullback soon. Then I'll get right back in, don't you worry chicpea.
